The rise of AI and robotics is something that’s rightly treated with some skepticism; after all, these new machines may result in the loss of 40% of jobs, and if replacements for these lost positions aren’t found, then civil unrest will be likely. However, while there are some sectors where AI should be treated with caution, there are some areas where the development and integration of AI and robotics should be welcome. Healthcare is one of these areas. From helping to diagnose patients to assisting surgeries to all-around boosting the patient experience, the integration of advanced technology in the healthcare system could bring plenty of benefits.
Indeed, instead of approaching this issue with caution, there should be excitement about what it can bring to the table. There are many areas where AI can help, including preventative care and early diagnosis of conditions, which can make illnesses and diseases much easier to manage. Moving forward, more advanced AI will help to make better decisions about which healthcare path to take, and help with research that’ll push the medical community forward.
Ultimately, this is a move that will benefit everyone involved in the healthcare industry. The patients will gain improved care, doctors and nurses can deliver better results, and the hospital can be run more efficiently. In order to make the most of AI, it’s important that staff are open to its use and trained to use it well.
